Id want the full package when get a new phone. Not a brown box with a phone and usb charger.
This would put me off getting the phone from o2 if I was going to get this phone.
No charger, huh? What this will acturally mean is people will obviously use other chargers and over the course of time ruin their batteries in the process. Has any body ever tried to charge a tablet from a PC? Takes forever, doesnt it.
While most charging ports on most phones ARE compatible, different batteries have different capacities and therefore require an official charger in order to charge in the time stated in the device specifications.
A collegue of mine, got a Kindle Fire tablet for christmas (which also came without a charger). Using the charger from her HTC desire C, it would take longer than 12 hours to charge from flat to full. She ended up buying an official charger from amazon for about £17 ($25). Which bring me back to my main point; Is there an official charger for this device that HTC (not O2) can sell WITH this device?
Will they be good enough to pass this saving on to the customer? I doubt it'll save them more than £1 in shipping/manufacturing - but will they reduce the price or pocket the extra profit?
